Solve polynomial equations using factoring. 2. Solve polynomial equations using factoring by grouping. 3. Solve polynomial equations using the root method. 4. Find factors, zeros, xintercepts, and solutions. http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. 3 Rev.S08 Quick Review of Polynomial Division http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. The The quotient quotient is is x 2 + 5 + 5 x + 10 with a + 10 with a remainder remainder of 24. of 24.

Solution The graph shows that the zeros or xintercepts of f are  3, 1and 3 . Since f ( 3) = 0, the factor theorem states that ( x + 3) is a factor , and f (1) = 0 implies that ( x 1) is a factor, and f (3) = 0 implies ( x 3) is a factor . Thus the factors are ( x + 3)( x 1), and ( x 3) . http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. 7 Rev.S08 Complete Factored Form http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. 8 Rev.S08 Example http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. Find all real solutions to the equation 4 x 4 – 17 x 2 – 50 = 0. Solution The expression can be factored similar to a quadratic equation ....
